Two for Tuesday

But first – as I write today, there are only 199 DAYS TIL CHRISTMAS!  That’s just around the corner!

We’re beginning to see a lot of new things around Christmas Place ~ timed to be shown off  to best advantage in our shiny new surroundings, as new displays are created each day by the design team.  Christmas may be a few months away, still, but it’s never too early to get excited about it!

I am lovin’ on these tiny little music box lanterns!  There are two styles, one with kids throwing snowballs and my favorite, this one with two horse-drawn sleighs circling a fiber optic-illuminated Christmas tree.  A simple wind-up mechanism starts the action ~ lights, motion, and the tune “Let it Snow.”  The top of the lantern includes a chain, so you could hang it on your Christmas tree or from a stair rail, mantle, shelf, or ornament display stand.

And now for something very similar…well, with the lights, at least ~ two ways to add a festive flashing snowman to your holiday decor.  Wall-mounted or tabletop, which one works best for you?  One of each??  I LIKE THAT!   Real knit caps and scarves accessorize each snowman.

Speaking of flashing things, it’s time once again for the annual display of synchronous fireflies, visible late at night in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  The park is again offering shuttle service to a popular viewing area at Elkmont.

What’s new and flashing in your neck of the woods?
